Amada Weld Tech Europe is highlighting its TR-T0016A Touch Retract Welding Torch.

This hand-held and machine-mountable tool has been developed specifically for the welding of conductive thin-sheet metal and is optimized for the assembly of battery modules and packs.

One benefit of the TR-T0016A is its ability to allow battery makers to transition from nickel to copper tabs, ultimately improving battery performance by 20%. Though copper’s conductive nature makes it difficult to weld with resistance welding, the micro-arc welding enabled by the TR-T0016A provides an efficient means of generating localized heat. 

The tool is suitable for welding multiple battery designs in a wide range of battery pack configurations. Specific applications of the TR-T0016A include the following: stainless steel 0.3 mm to stainless steel 0.3 mm, 0.3 mm stainless steel to 0.1 mm 9 carat gold plated stainless steel, 0.3 mm copper tab to 18650 battery cells, and welding 0.3 mm copper tab to battery cells.

A light, ergonomic design enables operators manipulate the tool more easily. The protruding electrode and narrow, 7 mm nozzle enable weld location control. The narrow nozzle also allows for simple, repeatable weld location. Further, it can upscale manufacturing capacity with an integrated collar for machine integration.
